We begin a new weekly showcase at 7Sisters Brewing Co. in SLO. First show is Jan. 11, featuring local favorite, Chris Beland. His music nods stylistically to folk gods Paul Simon and Bob Dylan as well as contemporary artists Vance Joy and Josh Ritter. Beland’s soulful silk vocals flesh out his subtly profound lyrics of love, humanity, and humility. As a solo act, he accompanies his words with the seasoned strum of an acoustic guitar, the haunted twang of a harmonica, and the steady heartbeat of his kick drum. http://www.chrisbeland.com/
Special guests include Tim Jackson, Amie Richie, Jennifer Martin, Max MacLaury, and Michael Venia with carbon city lights.
Showcase runs 6:30-9:00 at 7Sisters Brewing, 181 Tank Farm Rd. (at Long St., just north of Higuera), San Luis Obispo, (805) 868-7133. All ages OK, no cover charge. Craft beers, food available too.
